Bluebird of Happiness, Pigeon of Discontent…and the Chicken of Depression.

My father is a huge fan of Gary Larson’s brilliant The Far Side cartoons, and for years, each Christmas, we’d give him the Page-a-Day Far Side calendar. He kept the calendar on his desk at work, and when one cartoon was especially good, he’d bring it home to show us.

So when a thoughtful reader sent me this very appropriate Far Side, it not only made me laugh but also brought back many happy memories from childhood.
